After a freak accident in 1937, wealthy and beautiful 29-year-old Adaline (Lively) stops aging; every decade she has to move on in order to keep her secret, until she falls in love. Smooth, tasteful look at immortality; Lively is a bit lacking in star power, but Ford and Burstyn give wonderfully nuanced performances.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
Adeline is 107 years old, but she has not aged a day since a freak accident when she was 29 years old. Her daughter now looks old enough to be her grandmother, and after a life of hiding her secret and constantly changing her identity, Adeline is alone.
Everything changes after a chance meeting leads to a weekend where she comes face to face with an old flame . Well written and beautifully acted, particularly by Harrison Ford as the old love, this film rises above fantasy to give suprising depth and emotion.
